Hey kids! Visit the Museum of Death!

Now I've gone down Hollywood a million times and I haven't ever scene or noticed this place. You think you would. I havent gone in, but the reviews from Yelp paint a picture of tourist trap/ fun palce to go to on a date.

Alba M. on yelp said, "One of the highlights of the Museum was seeing original "Dr. Death" Jack Kevorkian paintings, Wayne Gacy Paintings, and the curator informed me that they were in the process of attaining Kurt Cobain's suicide sweater."

So if you wanna check out stuff homicidal maniac made stuff head to this strange weirdo place.

From their site: Death houses the worlds largest collection of Serial Murderer Artwork, Photos of the Charles Manson Crime Scenes, the Guillotined Severed Head of the Blue Beard of Paris, Henri Landru, Original Crime Scene and Morgue Photos from the Grisly BLACK DAHLIA MURDERS, a Body Bag and Coffin collection, replicas of Full Size Execution Devices, Mortician and Autopsy Instruments, Pet Death Taxidermy

Also on display are videos of autopsies and serial killers, the Heaven's Gate Cult recruiting video, and the infamous Traces (not faces) of Death video, all real (not re-enacted) Death footage

Staff is apparently friendly.
